Former Wimbledon and US Open finalist Kevin Anderson then crushed Cristian Garin, who needed an injury time out, 6-0, 6-3 to seal the tie for South Africa.
Later, Raven Klaasen and Ruan Roelofse of South Africa edged their opponents, Jarry and Garin, in a super tie-breaker 10-7 to win the doubles match.
Klaasen and Roelofse won 1-6, 6-3, 10-7 to make it 3-0 for South Africa.
